Hello all,

I've been meaning to talk with you about where we're at on future OCTs.  As is obvious, our grand ambitions for a new OCT have yielded little movement for a while now.  Part of it was a traumatic personal event that I am not yet ready to talk about publicly that caused a massive depression spike.  Part of it is Cory (SaintKhan) and I have been exceptionally busy trying to get our company off the ground and grow our own projects, like my Webcomic and our Storytelling Podcast.  And part of it is that, somewhere along the line, we lost the fun of OCTs and we're trying to find it again.  We lost touch with that spark, with the joy, and OCTs just became an overwhelming third job.  We tried to please as many people as we could, but the result was that we weren't pleasing ourselves.

That doesn't mean we're not thinking about doing another one.  We still love watching storytellers grow.  We are still amazed and humbled by the support of different members of the community.  

What we lack is, for the moment, an idea that is just as fun for us as it is for those involved and the energy reserves to start anew.  I have no doubt that, someday, that idea will come and the time will be right.  What I don't know is WHEN that will be.

I do hope that you'll keep an eye on this account.  We want to come back, and we'd love for you to join us when we return.

Best Regards,

Robin Childs (RobinRone)

Hello from OCTFollowers! It's time for spring cleaning!

I've noticed you still have an ad with us. Is this group still active? If so, would you like us to move you're ad over to the-OCT-list? You're other option would be to let us delete your ad for now, and resubmit to either group when you're ready (we'll be moving listings back to OCTF in the future, after I've cleaned it up!) Please get back to me as soon as you can, thanks :)

Thanks for contacting me.  We're in a bit of a weird limbo state at the moment, as we're working on a new OCT, but it may be a while before we can juggle everything to start it.  So maybe it would be best for us to resubmit later?  It sounds like that would fit best with your clean up efforts.
Aegypius-X Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2016  Professional General Artist
Yeah, I would generally recommend it in most cases. I'll remove your ad for now. If you happen to be ready for a new ad before OCTF is up and running, feel free to submit an ad with the-OCT-list, all the listings we have over there will be automatically transferred back to OCTF when we're ready.

Hi! Checking in from OCTFollowers. Is this group still active?

I've been meaning to post an official notice of what's been going on, but for now it's probably most accurate to list it as on hiatus.  We hope to return to doing OCTs, but life is in the way at the moment.

Thanks for getting back to me, your status has been updated :)

I noticed you got another super membership thing...

So how much longer til we have a plot to start writing for?
RobinRone Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Professional Artist
Please see this journal post:

Right now Cory & I are working two jobs and trying to eat, pay bills, and keep the lights on.  Patreon and sales from a Convention earlier this month are the only reason we could pay for the super membership in the first place.  So, since the OCT pays exactly $0 and -time, it cannot be top priority.  I wish it was different, and we are working on it when we have a moment spare or two to do so, but it's going to be a while. 

If you'd like to speed things up, please support the work we're doing currently, which we offer to you for free.  Even as little as $1 a month can have a huge impact.

You spot a familiar face. Familiar to some, at least. They take a seat in the chat room, and patiently await any that might greet them.
